As a student at the Glasgow School of Art, you will live in self-catered housing, in a flat or student residence with other local and international students. Wireless internet access is provided and token-operated laundry facilities are available. Students will need to supply their own bedding materials, though most students opt to purchase these items after arriving in Scotland. All housing at the GSA is non-smoking.
All housing options at GSA are self-catered, so you’ll prepare your own meals in shared kitchens. Cutlery and crockery are not provided, but can be purchased inexpensively in Glasgow. Both residences are within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and cafes. As you read through the information below, please also review the general Scotland housing information.
